Circa 1910.





wait... did they have a full moai plus a moai head, or maybe the full moai and a repro head to show the topknot-?

EDIT...
nmnh has both a head and a full moai, Head SI-WDC-002 and Moai SI-WDC-001 - guess the head is in storage.

This big fella lives in a miniature golf arcade in Reno Nevada. I couldn't get a decent shot cuz of all the trees (I was outside of the fence) so I handed my camera to a gentleman playing golf who kindly snapped the pic for me. Wish I'd gotten his name-he said he had a photography studio in Reno.Gods of Rapa-Nui were smiling on me.
He's bout 40-45' tall
Cheers

I did a TC search and didn't find anything on these guys.

http://jin.jcic.or.jp/en/travel/kyushu/miyazaki/sunmesse_nichinanshi/

On the hilltop of Nichinan Coastline in Miyazaki prefecture is the theme park "Sun Messe Nichinan." The park's key feature is seven replicas of Moai statues with their backs turned toward the Pacific Ocean, 15,000 kilometers removed from the originals on Easter Island, Chile.

The statues were created with the official permission of the Polynesian island, granted in thanks for the restoration efforts made by Japanese construction companies. Standing tall at 5.5 meters, the stone sculptures make a sharp contrast against the subtropical oceanfront.

The seven statues represent work, health, love, travel, marriage, money, and study, supposedly able to help improve respective spheres of your life if you only touch them with heartfelt wishes.

Besides Moai statues, the park also offers a unique combination of amusement facilities, including a restaurant, a spa, an insect museum, and a pleasant pature land with cows and goats roaming about.

And here's a real moai, Hoa Hakananai'a, at the British Museum.



More photos of it and other moai can be found here:

There's also a faux moai along Route 66 in Arizona: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=15121&forum=2&start=last& - Greg
